Two lions die at Pakistan zoos in 2 days
LAHORE – A male lion has died only a day after the death of a lioness at a wildlife sanctuary in Pakistan on Thursday.
The lion was seriously ill after the caretakers at Islamabad’s Marghazar Zoo lighted fire inside the cage and forced the lion to move out. It was being looked after by veterinarians at the Mohiuddin Private Breeding Farm on Ganda Singh Road in Lahore.
On Wednesday, the Islamabad Wildlife Management Board (IWMB) confirmed the death of a nine-year-old lioness while it was being moved to an animal sanctuary in Lahore.

Dr Rehman said that the process of catching animals and shifting them into cages causes stress, which was compounded by the hot and humid weather.
